Mascot Smash Repairs
The team at Mascot Smash Repairs were excellent to deal with. Communication was brilliant - we had to reschedule drop off due to a public holiday and they called me well in advance to make sure I wasn’t inconvenienced. They also completed the work earlier than anticipated. The new parts were perfect - my car has never looked so good. All in all an easy experience. Highly recommended!
